2017 (Q1 & Q2) Report Card: 90% ITAs were Issued to Candidates Without Job Offer

In Quarter 1 and 2 of the past year 2017, 90% of ITAs were issued to candidates without any Job offer letter from Canada. 11 months prior to this, when there used to be no reduction of points for Job offer, this figure was as low as 62% only.

IRCC declaring these statistics, revealed that reduction in point scores for Job offer letter has resulted in this changed scenario for ITAs. Now, concentration of invitations are with those candidates who are having higher scores for Human Capital Factor. This is closer to the ground for candidates under Express Entry’s Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP).

Earlier, points on Job offer letter from Canada used to be 600. In the changes that were made in Express Entry’s rules in January 2016, these points were reduced. Now, the maximum points a candidate can get for Job offer is 200 and minimum score is 50 (depending on your NOC).

Factors on which a candidate earns points under FSWP are age, education, work experience and English & French language abilities.
